Boo! Finding a fun topic is always key when trying to get your kid to love reading. My daughter is now 2 and half and is currently obsessed with everything Halloween. Last year she was excited and knew what was going on for the holiday, but we only made it to a couple of houses for trick-or-treating. This year, she pretends to trick-or-treat around the house and loves seeing all the Halloween decorations around our neighborhood. Everyday she asks if it is Halloween yet! 

Since I used to teach, I have many Halloween books. I am also a sucker for buying children’s books. Every mom knows when you walk into Target with a child- you are bound to buy a few unnecessary items or toys. These past few trips, we have just been stocking up on Halloween books. This keeps her entertained in the shopping cart while I shop, which is an added bonus! We now have quite the collection! My daughter’s favorites are “The Spooky Wheels on the Bus”, “Click, Clack, Boo!” and “5 Little Pumpkins”.

Happy Halloween!
